My husband and I stayed at the Cooper`s Inn two weeks ago, while in Nova Scotia for a family reunion. We had spent the afternoon hiking the Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct trail - you MUST go here, too! We arrived in time for the complementary glass of wine at 5:00 p.m. in the garden area. We sat at an umbrella table... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the coopers inn. Our room was cute and cozy, though the bed was a little uncomfortable. Hosts were lovely and breakfast was delicious. The town is beautiful and quaint with several good restaurants to choose from. We will be back for another visit.

The breakfast was one of the best that we have ever had at a B&B. the only complaint I would have is that the... More

Stayed here for one night in June. The inn is situated on the waterfront in the beautiful village of Shelburne which has many historic buildings. We were greeted by a very friendly person, shown to our room, and invited to the nightly "Happy Hour" where guests are able to have a drink with the host - a very nice touch,... More

We spent one night in the J. Chandley Smith room, which is a small first floor room with a private entrance off the beautiful gardens. Because we stayed only one night, the small room was perfectly fine. If I had stayed two or three nights, I would have reserved a larger room. The room was spotless! There were wine glasses... More

I've stayed in the Cooper's Inn several times. It's more than just the "best choice in Shelburne"; it's a very fine b&b by any standard. Yes, some rooms are small but they are accurately illustrated on the website, and of course, vary in price relative to each. To be surprised by the size of the least expensive room would suggest...

Stayed here with my teenage son on our father/son bicycle tour. Not really bike friendly. The only place to store our bikes was a flimsy bicycle rack located in their small 'garden'. The garden gets lots of traffic... and our bikes weren't protected from the elements. Our room was wicked comfy with HUGE windows that let in lots of fresh... More

( the room is multi-purpose, thus the advance notice ) We feel our room rates are fair for what we offer,( your particular room was $120.00).....Multi-course breakfast as you... More

Stunning old architecture with typical Maritime B&B hosts - i.e. exceptionally friendly accommodating and helpful hosts who, among other things, got me a reservation at the nearby (5 min's walk) Charlotte's Lane restaurant which is NOT to be missed.

The Cooper's Inn served as a destination for a quick weekend get away from Boston via the new ferry; Nova Star; from Portland Maine. The Inn is beautiful, the owner and staff very friendly, and the location is a perfect base for a days exploration on foot of the beautiful town of Shelburne.
